Last night I ate pistachio ice cream! As I sit here I feel like that could be the entire post alone but let me explain. Recently found a new allergist (didn't like the old one, this one is so much better), and he did a new round of tests since it's been 2 years since my last food allergy test. Results are in. Treenuts (other than almonds) are back in the diet. Peanuts are still under the not a chance category :-(. As for almonds, somewhere along the way my blood test for almonds didn't happen so now we have to re-do that to find out about almonds. The doctor was great and said that if the blood test comes back negative I can do an oral challenge!
So last night I ate pistachio ice cream. I used to love it as a kid so I couldn't resist last night at the grocery store. My first few bits I was incredibly nervous, but I was safe! It tasted great and now I'm excited to have walnuts again.
Hope everyone has a great Memorial Day weekend!

Made this in less than 20 minutes today for lunch. Salmon fillets, a pinch of sea salt, lemon juice, a sprinkle of pepper and dill weed. Place on tin foil, bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes. Steam some veggies to with and enjoy!

At the beginning of the year I decided to set myself monthly goals that felt attainable rather than 1 or 2
overwhelming giant goals for the year. So how am I doing?
January: Get the house unpacked and settled
So with the new job that I started right after moving this didn't happen quite as fast as I thought but we are settle and only room (it's an extra office so it's not like anyone but us sees it anyways) really needs attention.
February: Run the Rock and Roll half marathon
I walked a lot of this because I didn't train like I should of but I finished- Hubby ran the whole thing and did great!)
March: Love my wedding and new marriage
Check and check! My wedding was amazing and I'm loving married life!
April: Plant, and try not to kill, some flowers for spring
Yeah this just didn't happen. But the in-laws sent us a bamboo plant that's still alive so I think that counts for something
May: Try boxing
I just finished a boot camp with the idea that I would be more prepared for boxing but I'm actually enjoying boot camp so I'm going to stick with that for a bit longer. I'll do boxing when I'm bored with boot camp.
I think I've done pretty darn well so far! Looking ahead I feel like each of these goals are still attainable. Next month I gave myself the goal of one bucket list item but didn't share which one. We are going to Vegas for a weekend so that takes care of that but I wanted to do something else. So I'm still debating which item I'll do but I'm thinking either #2, #7, or #37. Any suggestions?
I hope all moms had a wonderful Mother's Day yesterday!
